This is interesting. Remember the fabled Rudy-McCain dinner a while back? Now Rudy and Mitt have been caught in the act. From Tuesday's Track:
What, may we ask, was on the table for discussion the other night when Gov. Mitt Romney and former Big Apple Mayor Rudy Giuliani were holed up in a private room at Davio’s???
Our eatery spies report that the pair of GOP party guys dined with Giuliani’s aides and Mitt’s bride, Ann, and that the attentive servers were kept at bay for some time between courses.
Now, you know the polls have the former Apple mayor second only to war hero Sen. John McCain to replace Dubya. Romney ranks fifth behind Newt Gingrich and Bill Frist, leading to speculation that Mitt may be a primo candidate for the No. 2 slot.
So, ya think the words “vice president” were brought up between the appetizers and dessert?
“Yes,” said Romney spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom. “They’re both big fans of Dick Cheney.”
Fehrnstrom, by the way, claims the political bread-breaking was “a social dinner.”
“The Governor and Rudy Giuliani are good friends who get together from time to time, and this was yet another occasion for them to catch up with each other,” he said.
It would be nice if Romney bowed to reality, wouldn't it?
